I had reports with incorrect hanger rod diameters for years using CADmep. It drove me nuts to print a report and then change the rod sizes by hand before giving it to purchasing.
The problem was that the rod size was tied to the hanger not to the pipe so when insulation is added to the pipe the hanger would oversize but so would the rod. I have since fixed my hangers and they now report out correctly and here is how you can do the same.
